How To Catch A Cattle Thief

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2014

We thought we had a cow stolen one time.


It was a really nice SimAngus female, tag #125, that just didn't show up one day at what we call the Loma Vista place.  We searched everywhere for her but didn't find her.  We had a pump jack stolen from there a few months earlier and it wasn't a leap to assume calm cow could be stolen from the place.

Two months ago, when the relatively steep tank we had installed a year before that cow went missing went dry, we found out that Allflex ear tags last quite a long time underwater.

We also figured out what happened to cow #125.
